Sun, 30 Nov 2014 11:55:10 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Stedman Bailey caught five passes for 100 yards in the first half of the team's Week 13 game.

Rams | Stedman Bailey, Chris Givens splitting reps

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 16:43:33 -0700

St. Louis Rams WRs Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens split repetitions with WR Brian Quick (shoulder) out for the year in Week 8. Bailey played 22 snaps opposite WR Kenny Britt, and Givens played 21 snaps against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey ($3,100; 6.2% of cap) is the receiver you should target first in fantasy leagues and at FantasyScore. Givens ($3,000) is a tad cheaper in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. Both are deep sleepers in a flex spot.

Rams | Chris Givens falls down depth chart

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 23:31:25 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens has been surpassed on the depth chart by WRs Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Brian Quick, and Givens may be a bubble in terms of final roster cuts.

Fantasy Tip: Givens has promise, but there is a logjam at the position. Bailey is suspended the first four games, and Givens has a chance to prove himself again. Givens is a final-round flier as a WR5 or WR6.

Rams | Happy with current WRs

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 09:53:56 -0700

The St. Louis Rams did not select a wide receiver with any of their 12 selections in this year's draft, and head coach Jeff Fisher said they are happy and confident with the group of young receivers they have on their roster. St. Louis ranked 29th in the league in receiving yards last year, 26th in yards per catch and were tied for 20th in receiving touchdowns. WR Tavon Austin came on strong late in his rookie year, and WRs Chris Givens and Brian Quick are expected to do more in their third seasons with QB Sam Bradford coming off an injury. WR Stedman Bailey will miss the first four games of the season due to a suspension, but the team also took a chance on WR Kenny Britt.

Fantasy Tip: Austin should be primed to take the next step in his sophomore season. One of the big reasons why the Rams' offense sputtered so much over the course of the season was because Bradford wasn't around. With a healthy Bradford, all of St. Louis' aerial weapons should benefit.

Mon, 12 May 2014 12:59:09 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Bailey has a ways to go before he is relevant for fantasy owners, but he is trending in the right direction.

Rams | Might only keep five WRs

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:00:40 -0700

The St. Louis Rams might only keep five wide receivers to start the regular season due to injuries at the tight end position. WRs Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey, Chris Givens, Austin Pettis and Brian Quick are considered the "big five." WRs Emory Blake, Nick Johnson and Justin Veltung are believed to be battling for the sixth receiver job.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Blake, Johnson or Veltung were to find their way onto the roster, they're a long way from having any fantasy appeal.

"I've been really impressed by some of the young guys that we've had - (WR Tavon Austin) and (WR Stedman Bailey) - I though they've done a great job. We're asking them to play a lot of different positions right now. Of course there's still mistakes, but for the most part they've been extremely sharp."
